TO: STUDENTS AND PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS 

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is a unique comprehensive 
state-supported University. It is the only comprehensive University in this State which has 
both a School of Engineering and a School of Agriculture — in consonance with its land- 
grant tradition. In addition, strong program offerings are provided in the Schools of Arts 
and Sciences, Business and Economics, Education and Nursing. Additionally, the 
Institution has a viable Graduate School. Consequently, matriculating students are 
provided unique and varied programmatic offerings. 

The University has a distinguished faculty — one committed to excellence in teaching, 
research and public services. Moreover, its Alumni Association is one of the most active 
and productive alumni organizations in the State and Nation. Its support for the University 
and its mission has been exemplary. 

This Catalogue provides specific information you will need to know about the University. 
However, a University is more than its program offerings, its faculty, its students, its 
alumni or its campus. A University can best be described as a spirit — Aggie Spirit. North 
Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University — The Institution — would be a 
barren place without the presence and spirit of its human resources. 

AGGIE SPIRIT is an integral part of this Institution's heritage and tradition. It is 
depicted in the lives of both the Institution's Torchbearers as well as the outstanding men 
and women who left the University their legacy. The heritage and traditions of the University are 
evident in every facet of University life. When one combines this heritage with the quality 
of our faculty and the soundness of our mission related programs, one readily discerns the 
greatness of the campus. 

I commend this spirit, these programs and this University to all students and prospective 
students. 

Edward B. Fort 
Chancellor

HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY 

The University of North Carolina is comprised of all the public institutions of higher 
education in North Carolina that confer degrees at the baccalaureate level or higher. The 
University was authorized by the State Constitution in 1776, and it was chartered in 1789 by 
the General Assembly. 

The University of North Carolina opened its doors to students at Chapel Hill in 1795. 
Thereafter, beginning in the latter part of the nineteenth century, the General Assembly of 
North Carolina has established and supported fifteen other public senior institutions in 
keeping with Article IX, Section 8, of the Constitution of North Carolina which provides 
that the "General Assembly shall maintain a public system of higher education, comprising 
The University of North Carolina and such other institutions of higher education as the 
General Assembly may deem wise." 

By 1969, The University of North Carolina included six constituent institutions, governed by a 
single Board of Trustees. This multi-campus University had its beginnings in legislation 
enacted in 1931 that defined The University of North Carolina to include The University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University at Raleigh, and The 
University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In the 1960's three additional campuses were 
added: The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, The University of North Carolina at 
Asheville, and The University of North Carolina at Wilmington. 

Beginning in 1877, the General Assembly of North Carolina established or acquired ten 
additional separately governed state-supported senior institutions of higher education. 
They are: Appalachian State University, East Carolina University, Elizabeth City State 
University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State 
University, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina School of the Arts, 
Pembroke State University, Western Carolina University, and Winston-Salem State 
University. Then, in 1971, the General Assembly redefined The University of North 
Carolina, and under the terms of that legislation all sixteen public senior institutions 
became constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina. 

The constitutionally authorized Board of Trustees of the six-campus University of North 
Carolina was designated the Board of Governors and this body is by law The University of 
North Carolina. The Board of Governors consists of thirty-two members elected by the 
General Assembly, and it is charged with "the general determination, control, supervision, 
management, and governance of all affairs of the constituent institutions." The chief 
executive officer of The University is the President. 

Each constituent institution of The University has its own faculty and student body. The 
chief administrative officer of each institution is the chancellor, and the chancellors are 
responsible to the President. 

Each constituent institution also has a board of trustees composed of thirteen members: 
eight elected by the Board of Governors, four appointed by the Governor, and the elected 
president of the student body ex officio. (The School of the Arts has two additional ex 
officio trustees.) The principal powers of these institutional boards are exercised under a 
delegation of authority from the Board of Governors.

NORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL AND TECHNICAL 
STATE UNIVERSITY 



HISTORICAL STATEMENT 

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University was established as the A. and 
M. College for the "Colored Race" by an act of the General Assembly of North Carolina 
ratified March 9, 1891. The act read in part: 

That the leading object of the institution shall be to teach practical agriculture 
and the mechanic arts and such branches of learning as relate thereto, not 
excluding academical and classical instruction. 
The College began operation during the school year of 1890-91, before the passage of the 
state law creating it. This curious circumstance arose out of the fact that the Morrill Act 
passed by Congress in 1890 earmarked the proportionate funds to be allocated in biracial 
school systems to the two races. The A. and M. College for the White Race was established 
by the State Legislature in 1889 and was ready to receive its share of funds provided by the 
Morrill Act in the Fall of 1890. Before the college could receive these funds, however, it was 
necessary to make provisions for Colored students. Accordingly, the Board of Trustees of 
the A. and M. College in Raleigh was empowered to make temporary arrangements for 
these students. A plan was worked out with Shaw University in Raleigh where the College 
operated as an annex to Shaw University during the years 1890-1891, 1891-1892, and 
1892-1893. 

The law of 1891 also provided that the College would be located in such city or town in 
the State as would make to the Board of Trustees a suitable proposition that would serve as 
an inducement for said location. A group of interested citizens in the city of Greensboro 
donated fourteen acres of land for a site and $1 1,000 to aid in constructing buildings. This 
amount was supplemented by an appropriation of $2,500 from the General Assembly. The 
first building was completed in 1893 and the College opened in Greensboro during the fall 
of that year. 

In 1915 the name of the institution was changed to The Agricultural and Technical 
College of North Carolina by an Act of the State Legislature. 

The scope of the college program has been enlarged to take care of new demands. The 
General Assembly authorized the institution to grant the Master of Science degree in 
education and certain other fields in 1939. The first Master's degree was awarded in 1941. 
The School of Nursing was established by an Act of the State Legislature in 1953 and the 
first class was graduated in 1957. 

The General Assembly repealed previous acts describing the purpose of the College in 
1957, and redefined its purpose as follows; 

"The primary purpose of the College shall be to teach the Agricultural and 
Technical Arts and Sciences and such branches of learning as related thereto; the 
training of teachers, supervisors, and administrators for the public schools of the 
State, including the preparation of such teachers, supervisors and administrators 
for the Master's degree. Such other programs of a professional or occupational 
nature may be offered as shall be approved by the North Carolina Board of 
Higher Education, consistent with the appropriations made therefor." 
The General Assembly of North Carolina voted to elevate the College to the status of a 
Regional University effective July 1, 1967. 

On October 30, 1971, the General Assembly ratified an Act to consolidate the Institutions of 
Higher Learning in North Carolina. Under the provisions of this Act, North Carolina Agri- 
cultural and Technical State University became a constituent institution of The University 
of North Carolina effective July 1, 1972. 

Six presidents have served the Institution since it was founded in 1891. They are as 
follows: Dr. J.O. Crosby (1892-1896), Dr. James B. Dudley, (1896-1925), Dr. F.D. Bluford 
(1925-1955), Dr. Warmoth T. Gibbs (1956-1960), Dr. Samuel DeWitt Proctor, (1960-1964), 



and Dr. Lewis C. Dowdy, who was elected President April 10, 1964. Dr. Cleon F. 
Thompson, Jr., served as Interim Chancellor of the Institution from November 1, 1980 
until August 31, 1981. Dr. Edward B. Fort assumed Chancellorship responsibilities on 
September 1, 1981. 



HISTORY AND PURPOSE OF THE GRADUATE SCHOOL 

Graduate education at North Carolina A. and T. State University was authorized by the 
North Carolina State Legislature in 1939. The authorization provided for training in agri- 
culture, technology, applied science, and applied areas of study. An extension of the 
graduate program, approved by the General Assembly of North Carolina in 1957, provided 
for enlargement of the curriculum to include teacher education, as well as such other 
programs of a professional or occupational nature as might be approved by the North 
Carolina State Board of Higher Education. 

On July 1 , 1967, the legislature of North Carolina approved regional university status for 
the institution and renamed it North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. 
The graduate responsibilities of the institution as a regional university are to prepare 
teachers, supervisors, and administrators for the master's degree, to offer master's degree 
programs in the liberal arts and sciences, and to conduct such other programs as are 
deemed necessary to meet the needs of its constituency and of the state. 

The University awarded its first master's degree in 1941 to Woodland Ellroy Hall. Since 
that time, several thousand students have received this coveted degree of advanced studies. 
A significant number of these graduates have gone on to other universities to achieve the 
prestigious doctorate degree in their chosen specialties. 

The Graduate School through its various disciplines is affiliated with The American 
Chemical Society, The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET), 
The National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education, The Council of Graduate 
Schools in The United States and other prestigious regional and national academic bodies. 

The Graduate School has an integrated faculty and student body. It coordinates advanced 
course offerings of all departments within the School of Agriculture, the School of Educa- 
tion, the School of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Engineering. Thus, the Graduate 
School offers advanced study for qualified individuals who wish to improve their competence for 
careers in professions related to agriculture, humanities, education, social studies, science, 
and technology. Such study of information and techniques is provided through curricula 
leading to the Master of Science or Master of Arts degree and through institutes and 
workshops designed for those who are not candidates for a higher degree. Second, the 
Graduate School provides a foundation of knowledge and of techniques for those who wish 
to continue their education in doctoral programs at other institutions. Third, the Graduate 
School assumes the responsibility of encouraging scholarly research among students and 
faculty members. 

It is expected that, while studying at this university, graduate students (1) will acquire 
special competence in at least one field of knowledge; (2) will develop further their ability to 
think independently and constructively; (3) will develop and demonstrate the ability to 
collect, organize, evaluate, and report facts which will enable them to make a scholarly 
contribution to knowledge about their discipline; and (4) will make new application and 
adaptations of existing knowledge so as to contribute to their profession and to human-kind. 



ORGANIZATION 
Graduate School Council 

The Graduate School Council is responsible for formulating all academic policies and 
regulations affecting graduate students, graduate courses, and graduate curricula. The 
council consists of the chairpersons of the departments offering concentrations in graduate 
studies, the deans of the schools offering graduate instruction, the Director of the Summer 
School, the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the Director of Admissions, the 
Director of Registration and Records, and the Director of Teacher Education, five graduate 
students elected from the Graduate Club, and five faculty members selected from the 
graduate faculty. The Dean of the Graduate School serves as chairperson of the council.

RESIDENCE CLASSIFICATION FOR PURPOSES OF 
APPLICABLE TUITION DIFFERENTIALS 

Residence classification for tuition purposes are set forth by law in North Carolina as 
follows: 

G.S. 116-143.1 — (The controlling North Carolina Statute) "To qualify as a 
resident for tuition purposes, a person must have established legal residence 
(domicile) in North Carolina and maintained that legal residence for at least 12 
months immediately prior to his or her classification as a resident for tuition 
purposes." This Statute also sets forth statutory definitions, rules, and special 
provisions for determining resident status for tuition purposes. These provisions 
include special rules with respect to persons who are married or who are within 
identified subclasses of minors. 

University regulations concerning the classification of students by residence, for 
purposes of applicable tuition differentials, are set forth in detail in A Manual To Assist 
The Public Higher Education Institutions of North Carolina in the Matter of Student 
Residence Classification for Tuition Purposes. Each student is responsible for knowing the 
contents of that Manual, which is the controlling administrative statement of policy on this 
subject. Copies of the Manual are available on request in The Office of Admissions of 
A. and T. State University for purposes of student inspection. 



FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

Graduate Assistants 

A limited number of graduate assistantships are available to qualified individuals. The 
student is assigned to assist a professor or a department fifteen hours per week for the 
duration of the assistantship. Some graduate assistants are assigned to teach freshman 
classes. Normally, a graduate assistant will be assigned to teach only one class per semester, 
but he/she may be assigned to teach a maximum of two. The assistantship offers a stipend 
that will assist a student to pay required tuition, fees, books, and board and lodging. 
Application for an assistantship must be made to the Dean of the Graduate School at least 
five months before fall registration. Only full-time graduate students are eligible. 

Other Assistance 

Funds, such as the National Direct Student Loan Fund, are available in limited quantity 
for students. Requests for information concerning these funds should be directed to the 
Graduate School. The newest kind of financial assistance available is the Minority Presence 
Grant. Under the Board of Governors general Minority Presence Grant Program, white 
students may be eligible for special financial assistance if they are residents of North 
Carolina, enrolled for at least three hours of degree-credit coursework, and demonstrate 
financial need. 

EXPENSES 

The fee charged to a full-time student carrying nine or more semester hours of work are 
the same as those charged to full-time undergraduate students. For one academic year, a 
state resident should expect to pay $827.00 which will cover tuition and course fees; this 
sum does not include room and board charges. Tuition and course fees for an out-of-state 
student carrying a full schedule will total $2,615 for the academic year. Current room and 
board rates are $886.00 per semester. 

As student fees are subject to change without prior notice, it is suggested that the 
Cashier's Office be consulted for complete information concerning charges for full- and 
part-time students.

GRADING SYSTEM 

Grades for graduate students are recorded as follows: A, excellent; B, average; C, below 
average; F, failure; S, work in progress (for courses in research); I, INCOMPLETE; W, 
withdrawal. 

1. In order to earn a degree, a student must have a cumulative average of "B" (a grade 
point average of 3.0 on a system in which 1 hour of A earns 4 grade points). 

2. A graduate student automatically goes on probation when his/her cumulative average 
falls below "B." 

3. A student may be dropped from the degree program if he/she has not been removed 
from probation after two successive terms as a full-time student. 

4. A student may not repeat a required course in which "C" or above was earned. 

5. A student may repeat a required course in which "F" was earned. A student may not 
repeat the course more than once. If a student fails a second time, he/she is dismissed 
from the degree program. 

6. All hours attempted in graduate courses and all grade points earned are included in the 
computation of the cumulative average of a graduate student. 

7. A student who stops attending a course but fails to withdraw officially may be assigned 
a grade of "F." 

8. All grades of "I" must be removed during the student's next term of enrollment. 



20 



9. A student may not count towards a degree program any course in which a grade of 

"F" was earned. 
Note: The North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction does not accept 
courses in which a student has received a "D" or "F" for renewal of certification. 



PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 
FOR CLASS A TEACHING CERTIFICATE 

In all graduate degree programs except those leading to a Master of Science in Chemistry, 
in Biology, in Food and Nutrition, Vocational-Industrial Education, and the Master of 
Science in Engineering, the student at A. & T. State University must hold a Class A certificate 
before being admitted to candidacy. 

To provide the professional education component for the student who enters graduate 
studies without the required credits in courses in education and who is pursuing a teaching 
program for the secondary school level, the following program of 24 semester hours is 
offered: Education 625, Education 400 (Psychological Foundations of Education), 
Guidance 600 and the Student Teaching Block; Education 500 (Principles and Curricula of 
Secondary Schools, the appropriate subject methods course, Education 637, and Education 
560 (Observation and Student Teaching). 

Students who have earned some but not enough undergraduate credits in education and 
students without "A" certificates who are seeking graduate degrees in early childhood 
education (Kindergarten-grade 3) should consult with the chairman of the Department of 
Education or the Dean of the Graduate School to work out programs to meet certification 
requirements. 

To provide the professional education component for Vocational-Industrial Education

take undergraduate courses in education and technical options to fulfill certification 
requirements. Students entering the masters program in Industrial Education who are 
teaching in technical institutes, community colleges, and from the industrial sector will not 
be required to meet state certification requirements for candidacy or completion of the 
Masters degree in Industrial Education. 

While taking undergraduate courses in education and psychology to meet certification 
requirements, a student may enroll in graduate-level courses in his subject matter area of 
concentration if he has completed the undergraduate requirements in that area. 



SUBJECT-MATTER REQUIREMENTS FOR 
CLASS A TEACHING CERTIFICATE 

If a student has not completed sufficient undergraduate courses in a subject-matter field 
to hold a Class A certificate in that subject, he should consult with the chairman of the 
department offering that concentration. Together, they must work out a program to satisfy 
the undergraduate deficiencies by means of undergraduate courses or courses open to 
undergraduates and graduates.

REGULATIONS FOR A MASTER'S DEGREE 

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY FOR A DEGREE 

Admission to graduate studies does not guarantee admission to candidacy for a degree. 
In order to be qualified as a candidate for a degree, a student must have a minimum overall 
average of 3.0 in at least nine semester hours of graduate work at A. and T., must have 
removed all deficiencies resulting from undergraduate preparation, and must have passed 
the Qualifying Essay. Some departments require additional qualifying examinations. 

In order to be classified as a candidate for a Master of Science in Engineering degree, a 
student must have a minimum overall average of 3.0 in at least nine semester hours of 
approved graduate work at A. and T. and must have removed all deficiencies resulting 
from undergraduate preparation. 

The following is the procedure for securing admission to candidacy: 

1. The student secures application forms for admission to candidacy from the Graduate 
Office, fills them out, and returns them to that office. This step should be taken as 
soon as possible after the student has decided upon a degree program. 

2. The Graduate Office processes the application, notifies the student of the action, and 
informs him/her of the time when the Qualifying Essay will next be administered. 

3. The student may take the Qualifying Essay during the first term of residence in graduate 
studies. If a student fails the Qualifying Essay, he/she may take it a second time. After 
a second failure the student must enroll in a prescribed English composition course 
(English 300 or 621) at this university and must earn a grade of "C" or above. 

4. The Graduate Office informs the student of any qualifying examinations required by 
the department in which he is concentrating his studies. 

5. After the student has completed at least nine semester hours of graduate study at the 
college, he/she becomes eligible for admission to candidacy. If, at that time, he/she 
has maintained an average of 3.0 in graduate studies, has passed the Qualifying Essay 
and all departmental qualifying examinations, the Graduate School informs the 
student that he/she has been admitted to candidacy and assigns him/her to an advisor 
in his/her field of concentration. 

In order to be eligible for graduation during a term, a student must have been admitted to 
candidacy no less than fifteen days prior to the deadline for filing for graduation during 
that term. 

CREDIT REQUIREMENTS 

The minimum credit requirements for a graduate degree are thirty semester hours for 
students in thesis and non-thesis programs. It is expected that a student can complete a 
program by studying full-time for an academic year and one additional summer term or by 
studying full-time during four nine-week summer sessions. 

The minimum credit requirements for a Master of Science in Engineering are thirty 
semester hours for students who elect to take the thesis option and thirty-three semester 
hours for students who take the non-thesis option. 



RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS 

A minimum of three-fourths of the hours required for the degree must be earned in 
residence study at the university. 



TIME LIMITATION 

The graduate program must be completed within six successive calendar years. Programs 
remaining incomplete after this time interval are subject to cancellation, revision, or special 
examination for out-dated work. 

22 



When the program of study is interrupted because the student has been drafted into the 
armed services, the time limit shall be extended for the length of time the student shall have 
been on active duty, if the candidate resumes graduate work no later than one year 
following his/her release from military service. 

COURSE LEVELS 

At the University, six-digit numbers are used to designate all course offerings. The last 
three digits indicate the classification level of the course. Courses numbers 600 through 699 
are open to seniors and to graduate students. Courses numbered 700 through 799 are open 
only to graduate students. At least fifty percent of the courses counted in the work towards 
a Master's degree must be those open only to graduate students; that is, numbered 700 
through 799. 

TRANSFER OF CREDIT 

A maximum of six semester hours of graduate credit may be transferred from another 
graduate institution if (1) the work is acceptable as credit toward a comparable degree at the 
institution from which transfer is sought, and (2) the courses to be transfered are approved 
by the Dean of the Graduate School. 

To request a transfer of credit, the student must complete an application in the Graduate 
School Office. It will be the applicant's responsibility to request from the appropriate 
institution(s) a statement certifying that the work is acceptable as credit toward a 
comparable degree. The transcript should then be sent to the Graduate School Office of 
A. and T. State University. 



FINAL COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION 

At least 45 days before a candidate expects to complete all work for the graduate degree, 
the candidate should file in the Graduate office an application for a final examination.

area of specialty. 

In the case of Engineering students, the School of Engineering will recommend to the 
graduate school whether or not this comprehensive examination will be oral or written. 

2. Students pursuing a degree of M.S. in Education, subject-matter oriented, will take a 
comprehensive examination in two parts, subject-matter and professional education. 
The evaluation will be made by the faculties in the respective areas. 

3. If a student fails a comprehensive examination twice, he/she must petition for a third 
examination. The petition is reviewed by a committee from the student's major 
concentration. A student who fails a third time is dismissed from the degree program. 

4. Comprehensive examinations are to be scheduled by the departments, with the approval of 
the Graduate Office. A report of the student's performance must be submitted to the 
Graduate Office at least three weeks prior to Commencement. 



OPTIONS FOR DEGREE PROGRAM 

The student, in consultation with his/her advisor, selects the degree program to be 
followed. The advisor must notify the chairperson of the department of the program plan 
which the candidate prefers to follow. 

Thesis Option 

In order for a student to pursue a thesis program, he/she must be recommended to the 
Dean of the Graduate School by his/her advisor and the chairperson of the department in 
which a student is concentrating his/her studies. The Graduate School must then approve 
the student as a candidate. The thesis program consists of thirty semester hours including

SECOND MASTER'S DEGREE 

The Graduate School of North Carolina A. and T. State University provides an opportunity 
for a student holding a Master's degree to earn a second Master's degree in another discipline or 
specialty. To be admitted for a second Master's degree, the student files the appropriate 
admission application, submits transcripts and provides pertinent examination scores. 

During the first semester, the student makes application for candidacy. In the last 
semester of courses, the student files for the comprehensive examination in the new 
specialty. In collaboration with the advisor, the student plans the new program to include a 
minimum of 18 semester hours in the new specialty to be taken in the University. Twelve 
hours will be accepted from the first Master's providing that degree was completed at North 
Carolina A. and T. State University. If the student is a transfer student, twenty four hours 
must be completed in the new program since University regulations allow only six semester 
hours to be accepted in transfer credits. 



ADMINISTRATIVE POLICY CONCERNING CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS 
FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN DEGREE PROGRAMS 

Generally, a student is permitted to graduate according to the requirements specified 
either in the catalogue current during the year of his/her first application for candidacy or 
in the catalogue current during the year of his/her application for graduation. If more than six 
years pass between the student's application for candidacy and his application for graduation, 
the university reserves the right to require the student to satisfy the regulations in effect at 
the time of his/her application for graduation. In all instances, the Graduate School 
reserves the right to require students in programs in Agricultual Education, Education, or 
Industrial Education to satisfy the requirements specified by the North Carolina

THE MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ENGINEERING DEGREE PROGRAM 

The School of Graduate Studies offers a program of study leading to the Master of 
Science in Engineering that involves all engineering areas. Students may obtain the M.S.E. 
degree either with or without a thesis. For those students who elect the thesis option, faculty 

46 



expertise and research are generally available in a variety of disciplines in support of topics 
of mutual interest. Because the departments of Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, 
and Mechanical Engineering have departmental Master of Science programs, with thesis 
options, it is likely that the M.S.E. thesis option will be of interest either to 1) graduates of 
our Architectural Engineering baccalaureate program with an interest in structures or 
2) graduate students who wish to participate in a thesis topic that is interdisciplinary in 
nature requiring expertise in two or more departments. There are many additional thesis 
topics in a variety of areas under Electrical, Industrial and Mechanical Engineering which 
are listed separately. 

Students may also elect the coursework only option which includes structured related 
topics under the M.S.E. program. Other relevant engineering masters level courses in the 
three departmental listings are also available to M.S.E. students. Many courses are offered 
during the evening, providing practicing engineers and students who work the opportunity 
to complete a degree program at the masters level. 

Degree Offered 

Master of Science in Engineering 

General Program Requirements 

Regular Admission to the Master of Science in Engineering Program is granted to 
graduates of ABET (formerly ECPD) accredited engineering programs who have attained a 
minimum of 2.6/4.0 Grade Point average on their overall undergraduate program of study. 
Two other categories of admission may also be invoked on a case-by-case basis. Persons may be 
admitted provisionally to the M.S.E. program if any of the following conditions apply: 

1. The undergraduate degree is not from an ABET accredited program in engineering 

2. The undergraduate degree is not in engineering but is in a closely related curriculum with 
a substantial engineering science content 

3. Any deficiencies revealed in the undergraduate transcript may be removed by the 
inclusion of no more than 12 semester credit hours of appropriate undergraduate course 
content not for graduate credit 

4. The grade point average is below that required for regular admission but there is 
evidence of successful completion of the M.S.E. degree. 

Any provisionally admitted student must earn a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average 
on his graduate work through the semester that his ninth semester graduate course credit 
occurs. In addition, a "B" grade point average must be earned on all non-credit 
undergraduate courses if any were required as a condition of admission. In addition to 
these provisions, other conditions may be imposed on a case-by-case basis as approved by 
the Graduate School. 

Students who hold an undergraduate degree but suffer from course deficiencies 
exceeding 12 semester credits can be considered for special student status — undergraduate. 
Persons with massive undergraduate engineering and related deficiencies even though they 
hold an undergraduate degree are asked to apply as transfer students to the appropriate 
undergraduate engineering curriculum. 

Other general program requirements include admission to candidacy and the satisfactory 
completion of a final comprehensive examination. The format description of this examina- 
tion is provided in detail under departmental requirements. Thesis option students are 
expected to follow reasonable guidelines in their field of study as approved by the Graduate 
School Dean. 

Departmental Requirements 

Upon admission to graduate study, the Dean of the graduate school assigns an initial 
academic advisor. With the help of the initial advisor, the student selects a permanent 
academic advisor. The course of study must have the approval of the academic advisor. It is 
designed to be consistent with the student's engineering interests at the advanced level and 
his interest in either a thesis or non-thesis option. The permanent advisor should become 
the thesis advisor in the case of the thesis option student. The thesis advisor should select at 
least two persons competent to serve on the thesis committee to evaluate thesis progress and 

47 



to participate in the oral thesis defense and comprehensive examination. 

The minimum credit requirements for a Master of Science in Engineering degree are thirty (30) 
semester credits for students who elect to take the thesis option. This includes six (6) credits of 
thesis. The minimum requirement is thirty-three (33) semester credits for non-thesis option 
students. In either option, at least twenty (20) credits are required from within engineering. At 
least one half of all courses must be at the 700 level unless explicitly excluded by the Graduate 
School Dean. M.S.E. candidates who elect the non-thesis option must pass a written final 
comprehensive examination. The advisor coordinates the examination for the student and three 
to five examiners of which the advisor may be one. Typically the examination lasts at least six (6) 
hours over a one week period. The student must satisfy the majority of examiners to pass. 

M.S.E. candidates who elect the thesis option face an oral examination scheduled by the 
thesis advisor after the thesis research has been approved for final typing by the thesis com- 
mittee. In the examination, the student must satisfy his committee on questions relating to 
his thesis or coursework. An affirmative vote by the majority of the committee is normally 
composed of from 3 to 5 persons including the advisor. Up to 2 members can be external to 
the University. 

Accreditation 

The Master of Science in Engineering degree program is supported by the administration 
and faculty of the four departments where undergraduate engineering degree programs are 
accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. 

Career Opportunities 

The holder of the Master of Science in Engineering degree is typically employed in an 
engineering or management position within government and industry. The M.S.E. degree, 
in particular the thesis option, is a good background for persons wishing to enroll in a 
Ph.D. program in engineering. 

Suggested Curriculum Guide 

The curriculum is determined by the student and his/her advisor according to interest 
and degree requirements. The courses that follow address only structures topics because 
topics and courses in other program areas are already listed under Electrical, Industrial or 
Mechanical Engineering.

At the graduate level, the department offers curricula leading to the Master of Science 
degree in Early Childhood Education, Intermediate Education, Elementary Education 
(General) and Reading. The program aims to develop prospective teachers who will realize 
the importance of change, and the need for continued learning. All persons who guide the 
development of young children need an understanding of the child, his world, and the 
numerous forces that influence him, as well as the basic principles on which decisions 
regarding instruction and practice are based.

ENGLISH 

Jimmy L. Williams, Chairperson 

Office: 202 Crosby Hall 

Objectives 

The objectives of the English Department are to provide in-depth training in English- 
Education, English and Afro-American literature, folklore and language. 

Degrees Offered 

English and Afro-American Literature — M.A. 
English Education — M.S. 

Requirements for Admission to the M.A. Program in English and Afro-American 
Literature and the M.S. Program in English Education 

All applicants to the M.A. program must have earned a bachelor's degree from a four- 
year college. Applicants must also have completed a minimum of twenty-four (24) under- 
graduate hours in English. The hours must include at least three semester hours of Shakes- 
peare, three of American literature, three of English literature, three of world literature of 
contemporary literature, and three of advanced grammer and composition. 

A student who fails to meet these qualifications will be expected to satisfy the require- 
ments by enrolling in undergraduate courses before beginning graduate studies in English. 

Application forms may be obtained from the office of the Graduate School or the English 
Department and must be completed and returned to the Graduate Office. Two (2) official 
transcripts of previous undergraduate or graduate records and three (3) letters of recom- 
mendation must be forwarded to the Graduate Office before action can be taken on the 
application. An applicant may be admitted to the program unconditionally, provisionally, 
or as a special student. 

Unconditional Admission. To qualify for unconditional admission to the M.A. program, 
an applicant must have earned an overall average of 3.00 on a four-point system (or 2.00 on 
a three-point system) in undergraduate studies. 

Provisional Admission. An applicant may be admitted to graduate studies on a provisional 
basis if (1) the record of undergraduate preparation reveals deficiencies that can be removed near 
the beginning of graduate study or (2) lacking the required grade point average for un- 
conditional admission, the applicant may become eligible by successfully completing the 
first nine (9) hours of course work with a 3.00 or better average. A student provisionally 
admitted may also be required to pass examinations to demonstrate his knowledge in 
certain areas or to take special undergraduate courses to improve his background. 

Special Students. Students not seeking the M.A. degree may be admitted in order to take 
courses for self-improvement or for renewal of teaching certificates. If the student 
subsequently wishes to pursue the M.A. program, he or she must request an evaluation of 
the work. Under no circumstances may the student apply toward a degree program more 
than twelve (12) hours earned as a special student. 

M.A. and M.S. Degree Requirements 

Except for the foreign language requirement, the admission requirements are the same 
for the M.S. in Education-English as they are for the M.A. in English and Afro-American 
Literature. 

Total Hours Required. The M.A. program consists of two distinct and parallel elements. 
The student may elect to take twenty-four (24) hours of course work and write a thesis for 
six (6) hours credit in order to satisfy the thirty-hour minimum requirement. The student 
may also elect not to write a thesis and take an additional six (6) hours of course work in 
order to satisfy the thirty-hour minimum requirement. Three courses are required: English 
754 — History and Structure of the English Language, English 753 — Literary Research 
and Bibliography, and English 700 — Literary Analysis and Criticism. The student must 
take a minimum of twelve (12) hours and no more than a maximum of fifteen (15) hours in 
Afro-American Literature. 



56 



Approximately fifty percent of the courses offered each semester will be open only to 
graduate students. These courses are on the 700 level. All 600 level courses will be open to 
both undergraduate and graduate students. 

Grades Required. Students in the M.A. program must maintain a 3.00 average in order 
to satisfy the grade requirements of the program. If a student receives a C or lower in more 
than two (2) courses, he or she will be dropped from the program. 

Amount of Credit Accepted for Transfer. The Graduate School will accept six (6) semester 
hours of transfer credit from another institution for those students enrolled in degree programs. 

Other Requirements (Comprehensive and Thesis Examinations). Students must pass a 
three (3) hour written comprehensive examination administered by the English Department. The 
comprehensive examination will cover only material to which the student has been exposed 
in course work at A. and T. The comprehensive may be taken twice. Those students who 
elect to write a thesis must meet the deadlines projected by the Graduate School in addition 
to standing a one-hour oral examination which constitutes a defense of the thesis. The 
defense may be attempted twice. 

Career Opportunities 

Both the M.A. and M.S. degrees prepare students to pursue graduate study for the 
doctorate in English and related fields. The M.S. prepares one to teach on the secondary 
and college levels. The M.A. degree is designed primarily to prepare one for college 
teaching and for admission to doctoral programs.

HOME ECONOMICS 

Harold E. Mazyck, Chairperson 

Office: Benbow Hall 



Home Economics 

The objectives of the Home Economics Department are: 

1. To develop satisfying personal, group and family relationships as a basis for active 
participation in a democratic society. 

2. To understand the enrichment of home and family living through the appreciation and 
use of art and advances in science and technology. 

3. To develop an understanding and appreciation of varying cultural backgrounds. 

4. To prepare the individual for gainful employment in one of the major areas of the profession. 

Degree Offered 

Food and Nutrition — M.S. 

General Program Requirements 

Admission of students to the graduate program in the Department of Home Economics 
is a baccalaureate degree from an accredited undergraduate institution and an overall grade 
point average of 2.6 in undergraduate studies. 

Departmental Requirements 

The Department of Home Economics offers the Master of Science in Food and Nutrition. 
This program requires a minimum of 30 semester hours and has two options, Option A and 
Option B. All credentials of the students are subject to evaluation of the Graduate Faculty of the 
Department of Home Economics at least four (4) weeks prior to admission. 

OPTION A is designed to prepare students for the advanced degree in Food and Nutrition 
and related areas, and careers in food research, nutrition, food testing, food demonstrating, 
clinical nutrition, dietetics, extension service and teaching. For admission to this program, 
applicants should have majored in one or more of the following areas: basic food, nutrition 
(human or animal), biochemistry, mathematics, biology, and physiology. Thesis is required. 

The undergraduate program should have included one year of each of the following: general 
chemistry and organic chemistry. Qualified applicants should have at least one course in each of 
the following areas: quantitative analysis, biochemistry, basic nutrition, diet therapy, and food 
science (experimental cookery). Failure to meet any of the above requirements may necessitate 
taking of undergraduate courses to meet deficiencies. Admission to candidacy for the M.S. in 
Food and Nutrition requires the satisfactory completion of a qualifying examination in Food 
and Nutrition. This examination is in addition to the qualifying essay required by the Graduate 
School. (To be taken prior to the close of the first semester of entrance to the program.) Other 
requirements are the Graduate Record Examination, a final comprehensive examination in Food 
and Nutrition which is only taken if a student has maintained a 3.0 grade point average in the 
Graduate courses and work at the 600 level or above, and has completed the Departmental 
Qualifying Examination and Qualifying Essay Examination, a 3.0 grade point average overall 
for all graduate courses, and satisfactory presentation and defense of a thesis. 

OPTION B is designed to prepare students for careers in applied nutrition. This program has 
two options, thesis and non-thesis. Students with a major interest in dietics, public service 
careers, anthropology, sociology, economics, education and teaching at any level from the 
kindergarten to the college may enter the program. Option B has the flexibility for students to 
write a thesis or to choose extra course work. Both opportunities have meaningful value in 
relation to students' interests, specialization, and career goals. 

All students who have not had any courses in Food and Nutrition must take Home Economics 
537, Review of Scientific Principles in Food and Nutrition. This course will count as a pre- 
requisite to Option B in such cases, and will be in addition to the 30 semester hours and may not 
serve as an elective. Both thesis and non-thesis program applicants may be requested to take a 
Diagnostic Test in Food and Nutrition to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. This test must 
be taken prior to registration. The non-thesis program may require more course work. The 

63 



advisor should be consulted. Non-thesis programs must include Home Economics 745, 
Practicum in Food or Nutrition. Admission to candidacy for the M.S. in Food and Nutrition 
requires the satisfactory completion of a qualifying examination in Food and Nutrition. This 
examination is in addition to the qualifying essay required by the Graduate School. (To be taken 
prior to the close of the first semester of the student's entrance to the program.) Other require- 
ments are the Graduate Record Examination, a final comprehensive examination in Food and 
Nutrition. This examination can be taken only if a student has maintained a 3.0 grade point 
average in the Graduate courses and work at the 600 level or above, and has completed the 
Departmental Qualifying Examination and the Qualifying Essay Examination. A 3.0 grade point 
average overall for all graduate courses, and satisfactory presentation and defense of thesis (if 
thesis is presented) is required. 

Career Opportunities 

A degree in this area prepares students to enter careers in research, quality control, college and 
junior college teaching, industry (food science), clinical nutrition, dietetics, extension service and 
public service careers.

INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING 
Arup Mallik, Chairperson 
Office: 206 Graham Hall 

Objectives for Industrial Engineering Programs: 

The Master of Science Program in Industrial Engineering is designed to meet the need for 
technical and/or managerial specialists in the Industrial Engineering area of concentration. 
At the same time, a general advanced level of Industrial Engineering Theory is attained by 
requiring each student to complete at least one graduate level course in three of the five 
program areas: Production Planning, Scheduling and Control, Engineering Economics and 
Management, Operations Research, Ergonomics, Systems Analysis and Design. 

Degree Offered 

Industrial Engineering — M.S. I.E. 

General Program Requirements 

The program is open to students with a bachelor's degree in a scientific discipline from an 
institution of recognized standing. Students desiring to enter the program who do not 
possess a bachelor's degree in a scientific discipline are required to complete with at least a 
"B" average a significant number of background courses in mathematics, physics and 
engineering science prior to admission to the graduate program. Students entering the 
program without a bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering from an accredited depart- 
ment are required to remove all deficiencies in general professional prerequisites. 

Program Options and Degree Requirements 

The Master of Science in Industrial Engineering program consists of two distinct options 
— Thesis and Project. With the Thesis Option, 24 semester hours of course work is 

70 



required. The other six hours must consist of thesis work. These hours must be at the 600 
and 700 level and a minimum of 50% of these credit hours must be at the 700 level. The Project 
Option consists of 30 semester hours of course work and 3 semester hours of special project 
work. These courses must be at the 600 and 700 level. A minimum of 50% of these courses must 
be at the 700 level. A student should submit a written thesis/project proposal before completion 
of 21 graduate credit hours. Before submitting the propsoal, the student should form an advisory 
committee in consultation with the permanent advisor. In order to graduate, students are 
required to maintain a grade average of 3.0 in all graduate level course work. 

Transfer of Credit 

Recommendations on transfer of up to six semester hours of graduate credit may be 
made to the Graduate School if it is not part of any prior undergraduate degree requirement 
and if in the opinion of the host department chairman, the coverage could adequately 
replace current graduate offerings in the student's curriculum. A minimum of three-fourths of 
the hours required for the degree must be earned in residence study at the univeristy. No written 
comprehensive examination is required, instead an oral thesis or project defense is required.
